In September 2016, Don Colley, one of Faber-Castell’s celebrated instructors and a graduate of University of Texas in Austin will begin his next illustrated road trip across America.  The 2016 Road Trip will cover over twenty cities where Don Colley will be holding drawing and illustration demos as well as sketch-out events at some retailers.

Don Colley's Road Trip
Armed with his signature vintage journals and a vest stuffed to the brim with Faber-Castell products, Don will begin his trek across the states in Bozeman, Montana and travel across the “bread-basket” of America.  The demos will focus on showing students and customers techniques and how to use Faber-Castell products.  Don also talks about his journey with Art students and gives tips on being in the industry.  During the road trip, Don will carry with him a number of finished and in-process pieces that illustrate the difference in using premium quality Faber-Castell products.  His main staples include PITT® Artist Pens, Polychromos Color Pencils, Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencils, charcoals and graphites.  

At every school and retailer demo we will also have product giveaways for students and customers to try our products and see the difference when using the best quality for their art.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their sketchbooks and drawing materials, as Don loves to help with projects has been known to take the group outside to do some urban sketching!
